Something like the P/S set form a N21-7T, RX21, 321 and 221 will fit. The R7 rods can be used but the main question is if it is worth it, If new bearing are also needed you are very close to a new Kangaroo engine (same kind of engine).

Caster pistons does tell me nothing.....
Microcasted or CNC pistons does only say about the production process and nothing about the alloy and the specs. It is just advertising, giving you meaningless info you realy do not need or understand but you will use it to make your choice.

A piston is a piston and if the piston has a short life or it shatters in pieces then a wrong alloy is used but it has noting to do with the production process (with the idea the production is OK)

Regarding Ninja/GRP, yes, I did fit one set into an old Nova SX21 crankcase and it works just fine. The only thing is to enlarge the 4mm hole for the piston pin on a R7 rod to 4.2mm.

OK, my mistake as well. I know some people talking about this a lot not knowing the real story behind it.
